Former CIA sniper Kadance Tolle possesses a special set of skills and a rare pedigree. She comes from a family of assassins, and by saving Lyndon Vaile’s life she risks being found by them. Despite the danger, Kadance feels compelled to help Lyndon discover who is after him–and his research that seems to prove that the Ebola virus was manmade and is about to be weaponized.
With shadowy figures pursuing them and a Mastermind watching their every move, Kadance and Lyndon must scramble to stop an impending bioattack at the State of the Union address. But their warnings fall on deaf ears, and it becomes increasingly clear that there’s no one they can trust–except perhaps each other.
Strap in for a breakneck story that will have you up all night, hurtling toward the last page as the clock ticks and time runs out.
Kadence and Lyndon made a great pair in Never Miss. They’re incredibly smart, with Lyndon having an eidetic memory and Kadence having an extensive amount of training. It reminded me of an episode of two different shows that I love. I’ll leave it to you to figure out what those shows are once you read the book.
Kadence’s past as a sniper puts her in a precarious position with Lyndon, though their instant attraction brings an element of romance into the story. I will say that I loved the realness of their attraction. Though both consider the other beautiful, it was Lyndon’s realistic thoughts and emotions that pushed the story to the next level. While there are no explicit scenes or statements, the heat level of this book is one step up from what you might expect. I could read it again and again because Lyndon is so blatantly honest about his attraction and Kadence’s reactions pushed me page after page to keep reading.
And Mac! Who wouldn’t love Mac?
The faith element in Never Miss spoke through Lyndon, which I thought was impressive considering his scientific bent. While the faith element took a step back, the suspense and romance in the story make it one I loved.
